Texas-born and raised country singer and multi-instrumentalist Craig Wayne Boyd showed an affinity for music even as a child. Growing up in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Mesquite, he was drawn to gospel and country. He started playing music when he was just four years old and was drawn to gospel and country music. He was active in his church choir and eventually became its director. He moved to Nashville to try for his dream of a career in the music business in the early 2000s and soon had a publishing deal with EMI. After ten years of songwriting, local gigs and national support touring, Boyd knew it was time to try something different.


After auditioning for the seventh season of “The Voice”, Boyd ended up on Blake Shelton’s team and his singing voice, playing and easy musical versatility made him a fan favorite and eventual overall winner with the hit single “My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face.”

He’s the second Country star to have a Chart topping debut single along with Garth Brooks’ 2007 “More Than a Memory.”
